So I didn't really think she was going to die until this part. Laura and Bill are walking down a corridor, discussing the refuel: another ten hours, and we're done. We can move on. Starbuck heads up the steps at the junction; as Bill calls her name the lights go out, all around her, leaving that section in darkness. My stomach flipped over; she didn't even notice. "Starbuck? What do you hear?" Nothing but the rain. "Well then, grab your gun and bring in the cat." Boom boom boom; Katee Sackhoff described her state after reading the script as, quote, "blown away." She wilcos the Admiral, and greets the President, telling her there's a hell of a view out there. "We're almost to the finish line, then we can jump the hell out of this system," says Adama, and "So say we all," says Kara. She turns to go, then comes back. "Um. actually, sorry. Boss, I have something for you." The goddess Aurora. They took her hands and replaced them with wings. "I thought that it would be a nice figurehead for your model ship." The one he was working on when Dualla explained to him the line of salt we cross when children are separated from their parents. When mothers lose their daughters, when fathers are cut off from their sons. When fathers lose their daughters. "Aurora. Goddess of the dawn." Yeah, Kara says. "Brings the morning star and a fair wind. A fresh start." Aurora: light, and wind. He thanks her, worried: "Good hunting," he says, and she's bashful. Bashful, as she thanks him, and runs off. He holds the figure up for Laura as they continue off down the hall.
